Ansah did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Ansah has been battling a lingering knee issue despite the fact that he's been active through the entire regular season. His absence Tuesday is likely due to that, but with the Lions on a bye this week, he doesn't have an official injury designation. Expect an update on Ansah when the team resumes preparation next week for their matchup with the Steelers.
Ansah (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Ansah was limited in practice throughout the week with the same knee issue that has marked him as questionable during the regular season, but he'll be able to suit up once again in Week 6.
Ansah (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Ansah was limited in practice after sitting out Wednesday. The 28-year-old has received the questionable tag for every game so far this season but has yet to miss a contest, which is expected to continue against the Saints this week.
Ansah recorded two tackles and a sack during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Panthers.
As per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Ansah missed out on a few snaps in order to get the middle finger of his left hand checked out. However, he was still able to log his fourth sack of the season Sunday. In fact, the Lions' pair of starting defensive ends, that being Ansah and Anthony Zettel, have now combined for eight sacks in five games, which ranks among the best in the league for a pair of starting DEs. The two should find continued success in Week 6 against a Saints team with a banged-up offensive line.
Ansah (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
As was the case leading up to the Week 4 win over the Vikings, Ansah was limited in practice all week while managing the knee injury, but he'll receive clearance to take the field on game day once again. Ansah has been a strong IDP option along the defensive line with 10 tackles and three sacks in four games this season, but all three of those sacks came in the Lions' Week 2 win over the Giants.
